We visited the Fox for a lunch, as my wife is disabled we had phoned earlier to ascertain if it could accommodate disabled people, the person who answered the phone was extremely helpful. On arrival we decided to sit outside by the river, it was pointed out that there were two steps in the corridor so it would be better... More

Stayed overnight in one of the riverside mews rooms. Rather disappointing. Bed was poor quality, open coil mattress (you get better at a Premier Inn) room was adequate but rather dusty in places. Overpriced in my view. We arrived mid afternoon having read on website that food was served all day Fridays but were told that they were having problems... More

First thing that impressed me was the setting, next was the fact that when I went to check in at the bar, the guy behind the bar was busy serving a customer and had another waiting, but he took time to acknowledge me and said he would be with me shortly. He checked me in then showed me to my... More

This hotel had all the ingredient of an English country pub, the one that’s printed on Grandma’s biscuit tins. My view from the garden was of old stone walls covered with climbing Ivy and tall rambling English roses. The flagstone paving lead onto lush green lawn sprinkled with daisies and an “Aunt Sally” game invited people to play. In the... More

We visited while returning from a walk round Bourton on the Water (lovely but very busy). The front bar needs a little bit of work, the young chap behind the bar was prompt at serving us drink but with just a hint of disdain. We walked through to the outside at the back which is by river Windrush. It was... More

This was my second visit to The Fox. The setting is beautiful but unfortunately that's all I can say about it. The food is average at best but priced way above its station. On my last visit we ordered a ham ploughman's for £12.95 and it came with one slice of ham. One measly slice of ham, a slice of... More

We had two of the newer rooms (Mews rooms), they were nicely appointed and a really good size for two adults and three young children. Paul the innkeeper is a friendly fellow, grew up in the area and provides great advice on things to do. Food was good (breakfast was great in fact), and the bonus is the river which... More

What a lovely country pub situated on the main road but accessed from the rear, plenty of parking. This family owned pub warmly welcomed us and the kitchen was open all day which was great as we arrived at 3pm. The traditional sausages in a basket were plentiful with fresh baked bread and the Home made Hamburger grilled was fantastic.... More

Stopped on our way back from The Annual Cheese Rolling event in Gloucester, as the two nearest pubs to where we had parked were large chain pubs, and we wanted to eat in a nice independent country pub, I saw the sign off the main road, and thought we'd struck gold when we got to this quaint Pub set on...

Good points: friendly locals and bar lady. Scampi and chips. Less good: place needs a bloody good clean and new carpet and upholstery. All a bit sticky. Will return in summer to sit outside as the location is truly lovely. I expect this place comes alive on a lovely day.
